Self Portrait

Starting with a ruler, pencil and pen I begin my process by choosing a piece of paper, measuring its dimensions and finding the central point of the page. I then carefully draw the lines with a pencil and then a black ink pen on top. Each step in my process is important in creating the final outcome. I find that I am contained within the drawing, therefore I become in a meditative state.

I begin adding black ink with a brush, this is the most important step which requires me to be relaxed and rested so my hand remains steady.

The process is a very slow and therapeutic process which eventually leaves me feeling very intuned with the drawing the more I do it, therefore when I have been working on the drawing for a while, I tend to be more precise and my hand feels even more steady. It is only when I start to feel tired that I start to make small mistakes in the work. Making mistakes is a natural aspect of my work and not something that I should be ignorant of. I feel that the mistakes in the work are integral to the process-led practice that I use.
